Too many dreams have gone astray

Or run aground along the way

Too many hopes have disappeared

In clouds of rising silent fear

Think positive in all you do

Your endless faith will see you through !

There’s an instant lonesomeness in the whispering of the winds

That fills the heart with loneliness before each day begins

There is a moment of darkness that dims all of our sights

A prelude to the blindness that precedes life’s true delights !

There is a joy that loving brings

With laughter and a smile that sings

A twinkle that does cause the eyes

To shine and light the darkest skies.

Keep positive in all you do

Remember lessons taught to you

Thank God each day for every gift

Beg Him to all your spirits lift

Take care you are divorced from spite

Continue prayers both day and night !

 

 

 

 

LIVE LONG TOO ( 2019 ) 2019/01/08

There is an oak outside my door

That stretches up ten stories more

There is no way that I can see

The sidewalk to the left of me.

This ancient tree is truly old

Devoid of nicks and is not bald

Her branches spread this way and that

She wears them like a giant hat .

And when it rains the ground is dry

Because her leaves are piled so high

Oft do I think, about those trees

That gently sway into the breeze

I’d like to know what I can do

To be that free and live long too !

 

 

 

 

I’LL VISIT AGAIN ( 2019 ) 2019/01/07

Well my dear, I saw an old friend today

With her soft pink skin and her hair of gray

Her eyes so clear framed by those gentle curls

She must have been the prettiest of girls.

As we sat there together I could see

That she struggled hard to remember me

She was a stranger that I knew so well

There’s no point to the oldtime tales retell.

I’m sorry that my dear friend has moved on

But I’ll visit again ere we’re both gone !

 

TO ROSA,  GOD BLESS !

 

DAY OF RECKONING ( 2019 ) 2019/01/04

I thank You Lord, for all my dreams

And all my silly hare-brained schemes,

For all the joy that I have known

In spite of all life’s sadness shown.

Like those whose paths have crossed with mine

Adding to that,  past valentines,

A birthday message gone astray

Or those I’ve loved who went away,

Remember Lord that I’m still here

My day of reckoning grows near !

 

AMEN.

 

 

SPECIAL CROSS ( 2018 ) 2018/12/30

Lord, how much longer must we wait

To meet our Maker, seal our faith

What vision is it we need see,

Embrace our hearts and set us free ?

What battle more than we shall dare

Or journey far that all may share,

Where in the end of win or loss

Each faces his own special cross !
